River Dog & Gone Curling
In the deep south of New Zealand, Central Otago is the last place in the world that still up-holds the traditions of outdoor curling. At its heart is Naseby, a town of character and community, bound together by their love of curling. They hunger for hard frosts and freezing lakes but their passion for ice is now been tested. A changing climate means that curling outdoors may soon become a thing of the past and these passionate curlers may never again be able to compete for New Zealand's oldest sporting trophy - the Baxter's Cup. River Dog New Zealand 2011 / 25min. Directors James Muir, Oscar Hunter. Producer James Muir. In the remote New Zealand countryside, the underbelly of a farming community continues to pollute the water and destroy the last remaining natural values of the Pahaoa River. Yet not all is lost. One farmer and his team of dogs challenge the status quo, battling against all odds to keep the river clean, protect the wildlife and to simply survive in this isolated and lawless land.
